Build confidence and improve your craft through weekly practice sessions with McKinnon instructors. Practice sessions are hands-on: be prepared to trade and stay the entire session. Held every Sunday from 6 pm to 9 pm, practice sessions are an opportunity for existing students and alumni to hone their skills and get some valuable, out-of-class practice time. Practice sessions are only open to McKinnon grads and current students. Practice Sessions are free for current students and $10 an evening for former students.
